I love technology, specifically twitter. Jason Dykstra (@jasondyk) and I have been talking for about a month or so and jointly decided to put together a twitter chat specifically for professionals in the ADR field (mediators, facilitators, ombuds, conflict coaches, negotiators, etc.).
Will you join us? Ok, firstly you might be asking what is a twitter chat? Well, lucky for you Jason recently wrote a blog post explaining it [HERE]
"...The chat will include 5-8 questions, that will be spaced out throughout the hour, for you to answer, comment on, comment on other people's answers, ask questions, etc. The chat is basically a dialogue, a conversation between fellow conflict resolution professionals discussing the topic at hand..."
Also, @prosperitygirl wrote a fantastic blog post giving a great overview on twitter chats and how it works [HERE]. The tips include:
- Read the stream
- Follow the moderator
- Follow the rules
- Be helpful
- Add to the conversation
- Keep to the point
- Arrive on time
- Be benevolent
- Show gratitude
- Give back

We hope to see you on Wednesday, August 31st at 8pm est.
